I study geodynamic processes of planetary interiors across the scales, using numerical models. In particular, my interest lies in putting geophysical, geological and geochemical observations in a geodynamically coherent framework. My research focusses on, but is not restricted to, the composition and dynamics of the deep Earth, and its control on our planet’s evolution. You can find more information on my research page.

I am passionate about science communication, outreach, and equality. This is reflected in my editor role for the blog website from the Geodynamics (GD) division of European Geosciences Union. I also represent all Early Career Scientists (ECS) of the GD division as an ECS Representative. I aim to foster an open, diverse, and inclusive community for young scientists. Feel free to get in touch with me if you have any questions or would like to be involved.
